MOMMY MAKEOVER: BREAST AUGMENTATION & TUMMY TUCK AT NORTH SHORE COSMETIC SURGERY
This mother of two and full-time educator came to us for a consultation on a mommy makeover. She was unhappy with the appearance of her abdomen and breasts since the birth of her second child. She was interested to see if Dr. Romanelli could restore her body to her pre-pregnancy shape. Upon examination, Dr. Romanelli found her to be an excellent candidate for both a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with a vertical mastopexy (lift). This combination would flatten out her stomach and lift and reshape her breasts, the exact makeover this mommy was looking for! Because this patient had some asymmetry in her breasts (a very common issue), Dr. Romanelli used two slightly different sized implants, both smooth silicone gels, 425 ccs on the right and 375 ccs on the left. He also performed a vertical mastopexy, which is a breast lift with a lollipop incision (around the nipple and down the front of each breast) and an abdominoplasty. She stayed overnight in our recovery suite, as all of our tummy tuck patients do. When we saw her at her first post-op 5 days later, she was already very excited about her results! She was back at work and feeling great within two weeks.
